Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Consumers’ Counsel Resigns
The head of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel has resigned after seven years of service.
Janine Migden-Ostrander called her decision extremely difficult citing a decision by the General Assembly to cut the agency’s two-year operating budget from $8.5 million to $5.6 million.
In a statement issued today, Midgen-Ostrander said, “I am leaving because the current environment makes it impossible for me to serve the only way I know how-as an advocate focused on achieving results for the public.”
Midgen-Ostrander has accepted a position as principal consultant with the Regulatory Assistance Project.
She will be replaced by Deputy Consumers’ Counsel Bruce Weston until a permanent replacement can be found.
